Our Lady of Carmel Church


The construction of Our Lady of Carmel church signaled Portuguese expansion onto Taipa island. It was the first church built on the island, and is still Taipa’s only Catholic church. When it was build, its location overlooked the sea, and now features a panoramic view of Cotai. The church was built in Portuguese colonial style, with a subtle white and yellow exterior, classical pillars, and an open bell-tower.
